A Consulting Agreement is used by a consultant for the provision of consulting services rendered in favor of another called the client. Consulting services refer to a kind of service where the consultant assists the client by giving advisory opinions or guidance to enable the client to navigate a certain business or industry. This agreement may refer to the financial industry, human resources, marketing, and advertising, or any other business or industry.

To illustrate, if the client wants to develop an application or software providing financial technology products or services, he can avail the consulting services of an expert in the fin-tech industry to help him navigate the challenges posed by the said industry.

With a Consulting Agreement, the parties can lay down the parameters of their relationship as consultant and client, and delineate what is expected from each other. This agreement specifically provides what are the rights and obligations of the parties and the specific consulting services that will be provided by the consultant.

This agreement specifically applies to consulting services and is not applicable to an employer-employee relationship, for this purpose, an Employment Contract should be used. Further, the parties can use a Coaching Agreement if the relationship will be more of a coach-and-coachee relationship. A coaching agreement and a consulting agreement are differentiated through the following points:

  • A coach assists the coachee in reaching a specific goal, while a consultant assists the client in learning or navigating a specific skill or technical knowledge.
  • A coach has a more holistic approach in terms of how he wants the coachee to achieve specific goals, while a consultant addresses specific points in the client's business or affairs.
  • A coach develops a coachee in a certain field, while a consultant assists the client in solving problems generally in a technical manner with the consultant's expertise in a certain field.
